My husband and I spent New Year's Eve at Char. The service was good and the ambiance was nice. The cold seafood tower was terrible. The lobster was overcooked and the tuna tartare looked very grey and unappetizing. I do expect more from such an establishment. How hard is it to cook seafood properly and display it in such a manner that makes it look appetizing? The filet mignon that we both ordered came back medium rare when we ordered medium and medium well. My husband sent his back and of course they just put it under a broiler to reheat. I kept mine. Besides, the pieces of filet were just placed on a large white plate with no forethought on presentation. The sides were ordinary. Ordinary mashed potatoes and ordinary sauteed spinach. At around $200 not including tip, it was expensive. Never again.

Went there for New Years Eve with 8 people. Service was slow (over 3 hours), and waiter hard to find when we needed something. Table and food were great. Prices outrageous though. The meal was over $600 and we didn't even order any wine bottles

I have been here number of times and it never disappoints. Service is always wonderful and the food is always great!! The only thing I would comment is for a vegetarian like myself they do not have many options other then ordering side dishes or a salad. The side dishes are always amazing but it would be nice to have a pasta dish on the menu.

For the price we paid the food was just ok. I wouldn't have minded the price if the food wow'd me but it did not. I had the bone-in rib steak and it was just ok. Nothing special about it. The best part of the night were the drinks.

I’m a vegetarian so I was happy there were things for me to eat there & it was delish. I dont mind spending a lot of money if it’s really good food & I have to say it was so worth it. My husband loved his steak the apps n salad really good. The brownie & ice cream were good not amazing . But I complained about it being chilly & they immediately took care of it for me I will definitely be back.
